UPDATE 12/30/22: Greeting the new year, it would be preferable if the sky were sparkly blue and the punctuation an enthusiastic exclamation point rather than a big, fat, doubtful question mark. However, engagement in real life more often than not involves stormy skies and doubt; but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So against the universal, age-old challenge of life itself, we wish you a new beginning fired by determined purpose and cheerful outlook despite it all. Happy New Year! As Mr. Berlin exulted:12/29/22: Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot, is 93 and still the model of that precious breed of American businessman fully aware and appreciative of the source of his success.
UPDATE 12/28/22: The GOP is heading for major division as the MAGA base wants Trump while those running the Party have other plans.
UPDATE 12/27/22: Some Americans are making the concerted effort to restore the Election process to what it was meant to be: living/breathing registered voters at the polls on a single day, results by evening. The ruling in favor of precisely that in Delaware is cause for hope.
MEMORIAL DAY AND D-DAY
UPDATE 12/31/22: Santa Monica, once a glamorous seaside playground for Old Hollywood and until recently still a lovely place to visit, now joins Venice and Frisco as the latest showcases of Californicated urban squalor and homelessness.
UPDATE 12/27/22: They’re rid of the radical royalty DA in Frisco and talking tough on crime, but the dying Patient-By-The-Bay shows few signs of recovery. The underlying illness is Ground Zero Wokeness that rules the whole state and has traditionally found its most eager adherents in what used to be one of America’s crown jewel cities.
UPDATE 12/27/22: Good news that school boards across the country, prompted by awake (un-Woke) parents, are officially, legally, in writing getting rid of the gender insanity from the schools.
UPDATE 12/27/22: The whole outrageous saga of suppressed Covid information at odds with the government’s chosen narrative is now out there thanks to the newly released Twitter Files. One thinks of Stalin’s Russia satirized in “Animal Farm,” but ugly reality has replaced fiction right here in the good ol’ USA. Read it and grind your teeth.
MEDICAL HELP FROM
UPDATE 12/28/22: Evidence continues to emerge of Ivermectin and HCQ being legitimate treatments for early stage Covid. Their suppression at the height of the hysteria was and remains the work of BigPharma fearful of cheap, easily available, effective AND competitive alternatives to their seemingly (worse than) useless vaccines.
UPDATE 12/28/22: Richard/Rachel Levine once again exhibits the grotesque face of Woke Gender tyranny. Anyone disagreeing is simply evil and must be summarily removed from sight.
UPDATE 12/26/22: It’s getting clearer by the day how hopeless the Russia/Ukraine debacle is. According to this retired military man, there is no chance of the Ukrainians beating the Russians.
Putin’s standing as a tyrant and bully holds firm, but even driving him out of the Ukraine is no happy ending for anyone including the Ukrainians or the U.S. currently throwing mounting billion$ into the morass. Grand Old Diplomat Henry Kissinger’s characteristic recommendations for “permanent negotiation” will never be the solution for a war between a thuggish Mafia regime and its evil, expansionist foe.
Our pouring limitless amounts of money into the occupied Ukraine is playing into the hands of one of the world’s most notoriously corrupt governments on earth (the Ukraine). It is virtually a certainty that those funds will be NOT be used against Putin but will mostly find their way into the secret bank accounts and pockets of a few conniving gangsters masquerading as “freedom fighters.”
This is one big, foreign mess to stay out of. But too late now.
UPDATE 12/28/22: Formerly one of America’s great institutions of learning, Stanford with its EHLI (Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative) now has gone full Orwellian/Stalinist and dictated all those words we’re allowed or NOT ALLOWED to say…he, she, man, ladies, guys…for starters, and that’s just a few of the “Gender-based” no-nos. For your own good and that of Big Brother, heed this “Content Warning: This website contains language that is offensive or harmful. Please engage with this website at your own pace.” Get up to speed on the following potential areas of verbal offense: “Ableist, Ageism, Colonialism, Culturally Appropriative, Imprecise Language, Institutional Racism, Person-First, Violent and Additional Considerations.”
UPDATE 12/27/22: It’s more than a bit disconcerting to see Canada succumbing to the Great Reset fate proscribed by Klaus Schwab and one of his star elves Justin Trudeau. Like Australia/NZ morphing into Stalinist/ChiCom satellites during Covid, we watch Canada with horror as the latest country once considered a bastion of Western Civilization’s liberties fading to grim gray behind newly installed Iron Curtains.
UPDATE 12/29/22: Sorry if I’m not Woke enough to get what KBJ, the Supreme Court’s newly installed Wokester, is getting at when making some incomprehensible point about “It’s A Wonderful Life” in reference to a legal case involving a website designer refusing to do a gay wedding site. The only point understood is that everything The Woke utter or demand must be accepted as holy gospel lest you be labeled Hitler/Nazi/White Supremacist/Colonialist/Bad/Worse/Worst.
UPDATE 12/29/22: Thanks to Obama’s primary focus on turning us all into victims & oppressors, a new Black Supremacy has now gained legitimacy and is growing like an aggressive, metastasized cancer. So much for the so-called “Post-Racial Presidency.”
UPDATE 12/31/22: Woke ‘n wacky Whoopi Goldberg has once again invoked her mad meme, “No one except Blacks are allowed to complain about being victims of racism, even Jews shoved in ovens.” Like many of her fellow Black multi-millionaire celebs, she fancies herself special and mightily threatened by anyone considered more oppressed than she is.
UPDATE 12/29/22: A headline reading “Benjamin Netanyahu Sworn In As Next Israeli Prime Minister” is a welcome heart stimulant in this depressing era of Bidens, Pelosis, Putins and Zelenskys.
UPDATE 12/27/22: Charlatan “scientist” Neil DeGrasse Tyson already has his own MA Hall of Shame post and, now with his child-hating Tweets ruining Christmas for any youngsters unfortunate enough to read him, has attained Ugly Grinch Weed Status in America’s Garden of Freedom. He joins all those who make a self-aggrandizing point of hating Christmas and Santa Claus.
